Don’t Lose Heart

2 Peter 3:1-9

We know that someday Jesus will return. This return will be characterized by its suddenness, finality, and righteous judgment against sin. Although John describes this event with detail in Scripture, it is nonetheless cloaked in mystery and has inspired many different interpretations. Whether you view Revelation as a completely literal text, a symbolic depiction, or somewhere in between, it is a miraculous, glorious and terrifying story of the future.

2 Peter 3:3-4 says, “Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, ‘Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.’”

We all know people who mock our faith and think we are delusional. Even though their laughter and hateful words may hurt or anger us, we are called to rise above retaliation and do two things instead: trust in God and love them anyway.

    God have mercy on us all!! Those that believe in your Son Jesus Christ and those that will come to believe in HIM and the unbelievers. Have mercy oh God!!! For your Word says to focus on Jesus and be in peace. To love our enemies and pray for them . Continue to bring light to what we as believers may be blind to in our own walk with you. May i always approach you, oh God with a pure and humble heart. I am reminded once again today that everyday we may work out our salvation in fear and trembling and Lord when I fail please have mercy on me. Forgive me Lord if I have offended You or others. And for those that may mock our faith in YOU, I am reminded, Phil 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. God have mercy on us all!!
